What is attorney-assisted mediation?

In attorney-assisted mediation, the parties already have lawyers and are either in the midst of litigation, or are coming back to the table with a dispute after participating in protracted litigation. Most of the time, their lawyers attend the mediation. The process is more evaluative than facilitative, with the goal of reaching agreement to avoid litigation and trial. Nancy meets with the parties jointly or separately, as needed, and conducts attorney-assisted mediation sessions in half-day or full-day slots of time.

The best way to find out if this approach is best for you is to schedule a Consultation with Nancy. Mediation is not the right approach for every client, and Nancy will help you evaluate all your process options to help you find the right fit for your unique situation.
